After the somewhat negative reaction to the inclusion of micro-transactions in future titles, Electronic Arts seems to have begun trying to correct the supposed misconception surrounding their CFO’s statements.
There’s no disguising the fact this isn’t a horror series anymore. A series with horror elements in the same sense as Bioshock perhaps but not an actual horror series.
While the first two games were certainly criticized for the amount of bullets and weapons you had to mow down space zombies, there was often at least this attempt to have horror moments. Dead Space 3 doesn’t even bother with that and at the end of the day it’s closer to Borderlands in some respects than the previous games. But does that make it bad? Far from it.
Here we go again. FPS season is back in order. Black Ops comes soon, Halo is in 2 weeks, so for now, let’s see if EA can steal the thunder with it’s own title, the long running Medal of Honor series, this time titled Warfigther. Does this game warrant another tour of duty for the modern day FPS genre or is it time to pack it up and accept the discharge (honorable or otherwise).
Having finally gotten around to playing it, I’ve got to wonder who asked for this? As has been said by many a person: A mystery is only interesting so long as no definitive answer is given. There are many reasons for this ranging from just guessing about what’s at the end to fans coming up with their own answers, which have the unfortunate tendency to be better than what we’re actually given. But someone must have been asking for Bioware to spill the beans on the last few mysteries of the ME-verse, so here’s Mass Effect 3: Leviathan.
Newly released The Secret World, or as I like to call it Hellboy the MMO, has had a troubled development. First thought up in 2002 under the name Cabal, it suffered being repeatedly side-lined due to other projects, scrapped and restarted ideas and various problems which would likely have sunk any other game. Such a development has spelled doom for other projects under EA, a certain Tiberium title comes to mind, but TSW is finished and released. Is it any good? Yeah, seems it actually is.
I told you we’d be back. So now, yet another giant that has nothing to do with peddling a major console is done with their main presentation. Let’s talk about it. Luckily enough, there weren’t a lot of that “Entertainment, not gaming” that Microsoft went for so it made for an overall exciting press conference.
